thank you all for your comments, i do read them.  sherise, i do have marilyn belford book and i do use her technique.  my problem is this technique takes longer to do vs the other technique that i do.  i just have to realize if i want it to be right i just have to take my time. whether i can finish it in a couple of hours or a couple of day.  i just want it to look right.  now for the person who left a comment and know my creative history.  why aren't you telling me who you truly are.  i have a idea who you are call me. i use to crochet and knit hats with people name or crazy design on them with funny shapes.  a few local well know singers would request hats from me.  i would also go into stores look at a sweater, go home and make that same sweater.  that is another time another day.  quilting is my passion now.  i truly started have problems with my hands. 

community day went great, no rain.  the motown quilt challenge was fun.  i could only name a few of the song and some of them i just didn't know what the name of the song.  my motown song quilt was "tears of a clown".  and it tied for first place for the peoples choice award.  we also gave two movie ticket to the person who could guess the name of the song to the quilts.  out of 16 motown quilts, two people got 11 songs right.  we also hung other quilts other than the motown quilts.  

here are a few picture of that day.  tears of a clown, wee bee quilters, (i am the one holding quilt), my newest piece as of now. and my t-shirt quilt.  i had 12 pieces hanging up that day.

we had a great time

stitches for now.

Yetunde, It looks like you had a great time. Is there a blog or website to see the Motown quilts?? I am curious. Take care, Laurie

Oh, Yetunde I am glad that you have to book by Marilyn Belford, and I hope that you are able to eventually ascertain the corret type of skin tones for your quilts. Also, another book that I have in my collection is Bonnie Mccaffrey Portrait Inspired Quilting. Bonnie paints her quilts and she explains how to create African American skin tones with tea bags. There are so many techniques that I find myself trying right now in order to ascertain color. It's all one step at a time. Keep up the great work, love your blog, and I have to create my own blog very soon. I can not wait to share some of the interesting things that I have come up with.
Happy Quilting!

I love your blog site and can spend hours just looking and reading! You are so talented! Can you tell me where you find the fabrics for the skin tones and hair. I have the hardest time here in Florida.

mary i have the same problem. i get this fabric that has 4 tone color. like 4 orange tones or blue tone. i get the one is has tone brown tone. that panel piece for the 4 different color tone is not that wide. a yard is about 18" for each color.
